12.12.2017: Conference Water as Natural Resource in a Changing Environment
Quality, Threats and Sustainable Use
Climate change, over-utilization, eutrophication, and contamination
are major threats for the natural resource water worldwide. With this
conference, we address current problems and options of the sustainable use of water, with particular regard to the environment and society in the Euregio region.
This comprises, e.g. pharmaceutical residuals in wastewater and
its purification, phytoremediation, biodegradation, diseases related to water contamination, and wastewater treatment in urban environments.
The speakers come from the regional, national, and international level and represent various disciplines, such as, e.g. microbiology, medicine, landscape ecology, humanities, and economics. Our aim is to catalyze an interdisciplinary interaction among scientists and stakeholders in order to solve problems around the resource water. Several institutions in South Tyrol, Trentino, Tyrol, and Grisons perform projects on the conference issue. The conference will enhance the national and international visibility of the territory on its way towards excellence in environment and health research and its applications.
